I am new to this and really need help. I am going through a divorce and it is now going to court. I have to get witnesses to prove that my husband is an alcoholic and mentally abused me. (The state I filed for divorce in requires a fault for divorce.) However, he isolated me from everyone I knew before we married. We only hung out with his friends. He was never cruel to me in public, always appeared to be the perfect husband. He usually only drank in private too. I am totally freaking out. What do I do if I do not have anyone to corroborate my story? I know he is going to charm the judge and I will look completely ridiculous. No one is going to believe me. I am TERRIFIED to see him again. I had to move across the country to escape him. I have so much self doubt and confusion about what exactly happened. Has anyone been in a similar situation?
